Roger Brent , PhD

Email: rbrent@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-1482

Dr. Brent studies the quantitative operation of the systems that living cells use to sense, represent, transmit, and act upon information to make decisions that determine their future fates. He specifically studies prototypic cell signaling systems in budding yeast and the pheromone response system; he has extended similar work to systems operating in single cells of tissues in a metazoan, Caenorhabditis elegans.

Peter Brzovic , PhD

Email: brzovic@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 685-1550

Dr. Brzovic specializes in biochemical structural techniques like the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). As a part of the Klevit group, Dr. Brzovic studies protein-protein interactions involved in protein quality control and repair, in particular, the interaction between ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes and ubiquitin ligases. Deleterious mutations in key participants of these intracellular pathways frequently result in the manifestation of cancer, cataracts, myopathy, and many other forms of chronic disease.

Holly Harris , MPH, ScD

Email: hharris@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-2712

Dr. Harris is broadly interested in the impact of lifestyle, nutrition, and genetic factors on women’s health. Specifically, she has focused on ovarian and breast cancer, as well as on hormonally related conditions that have shared reproductive risk factors with these diseases, including endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Much of her research to date has focused on understanding the role of the potentially modifiable risk factors of diet and lifestyle on the risk of these conditions. A more recent facet of Dr. Harris' research is to explore the interrelatedness of these conditions and their shared risk factors. As ovarian cancer is rare, she is particularly interested in identifying women, such as those with endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who may be at higher risk because these women may benefit from screening modalities for ovarian cancer which are currently not appropriate for population-based use. Identification of women at high risk for ovarian cancer and breast cancer is also important as it allows for targeted prevention strategies and can guide clinical decisions regarding frequency of screening and chemoprevention strategies for both of these cancers. Finally, understanding the influence of genetic factors, both alone or as a part of gene-environment interactions may facilitate prevention and help identify women most at risk for ovarian and breast cancer.
